Dangerous Encounters: Bite Force

Dangerous Encounters: Bite Force
Armed with a bite force meter, insatiable curiosity, and sheer courage, Brady risks his life to find the most powerful bite on the planet. Carnivores use their jaws for different reasons, but who has the mightiest bite of them all? Can the bone-crushing jaws of a hyena compare with the razor-sharp teeth of a Great White? See how a specially-developed replica of a human skull translates Brady's "bite force" research into bone-crushing human equivalents.
